TURF ROLLS

THE CORRECT WAY FOR THE SUCCESSFUL INSTALLATION OF TURF ROLLS
Finnurmi® turf rolls need to be laid within 1-3 days of harvesting depending of the prevailing weather. The lawn base on which turf rolls are laid needs to be 100-200mm thick. A suitable base is achieved by applying fertilisers and adding a mixture of sand and humus. It is extremely important to water the turf mat thoroughly during the first few weeks after installation.

INSTRUCTIONS

Instructions for soil preparation, installation and care
Prepare the lawn base with care before installing the turf rolls. A nutritious and well-prepared base gives you a thriving and lasting lawn. The best base for turf rolls is black soil mixed with sand. As clay has low water permeability, it is advisable to add a 5-10cm layer of coarse sand. Sandy soil, in contrast, allows water to pass too quickly. To prevent it, mix in nutritious soil or peat. If there are any structures in the area to be covered, the ground should have a pitch of 1-3cm away from the walls over a distance of three metres. We have prepared a set of clear instructions that make it easy for you to prepare the base and care for the lawn to provide pleasure for decades to come. After installation, the turf rolls should be tended to just like a seeded lawn.

Laying turf rolls on a new lawn base

1. Level the ground to its final shape.
• Remove, till or turn any existing lawn.
• Fill any pits and holes to provide as level a base as possible.

2. Add soil improvers.
• When preparing a new lawn base, add a 15–20cm layer of (compacted) nutritious black soil intended for green construction.
• Mix black soil, peat or sand into the turned/tilled earth to provide a healthy (compacted) lawn base with a thickness of 15-20cm.

3. Application of fertilisers
• Mix fertilisers and lime into the soil.
• If left on top of the lawn base, they may burn and damage the roots of the turf.
• Add the fertilisers and lime in accordance with the instructions provided.
• For more details, visit the websites of garden centres and suppliers.

4. Levelling and rolling
• The lawn base must not be too soft. Only a faint shoe print should be left when you walk across the surface.
• To level and roll the surface, use a concrete well chamber, water barrel or an iron shovel or rake in smaller areas.
• Clear the area of branches, twigs and stones.

5. Water the lawn base thoroughly.
• If possible, water it the night before.

6. Use a bricklaying pattern when laying the turf rolls. Do not leave any gaps between the rolls.

7. Roll the lawn lightly after installation and water it thoroughly.
• The turf mat and the soil underneath must get wet.

8. Ensure sufficient watering while the lawn is rooting.
• Both the turf mat and lawn base must remain moist during the 2-3 week rooting period.
• Ensure adequate watering by checking the bottom of the turf mat. The underside needs to be completely wet.

9. The lawn can be mowed as soon as needed.
• Do not allow the lawn to grow longer than 10cm.
• The recommended height for mowing is 4-5cm. Never cut more than one-third of the height of the grass.

Laying turf rolls on top of an existing lawn

1. Prepare the lawn base.
• Mow the existing lawn as short as possible.
• Spread a layer of soil on top of it to level any rough patches.
• Apply a 2-5cm layer. To fill pits, use as much soil as required to level the surface.

2. Application of fertilisers
• Mix fertilisers and lime into the soil.
• If left on top of the lawn base, they may burn and damage the roots of the turf mat.
• Add the fertilisers and lime in accordance with the instructions provided.
• For more details, visit the websites of garden centres and suppliers.

3. Levelling and rolling
• The lawn base must not too soft. Only a faint shoe print should be left when you walk across the surface.
• To level and roll the surface, use a concrete well chamber, water barrel or an iron shovel or rake in smaller areas.
• Clear the area of branches, twigs and stones.

4. Water the lawn base thoroughly.
• If possible, water it the night before.

5. Use a bricklaying pattern when laying the turf rolls. Do not leave any gaps between the rolls.

6. Roll the lawn lightly after installation and water it thoroughly.
• The turf mat and the underlying soil must be wetted from the water that soaks through the top layer.

7. Ensure sufficient watering while the lawn is rooting.
• Both the turf mat and lawn base must remain moist during the 2-3 week rooting period.

8. The lawn can be mowed as soon as needed.

• Do not allow the lawn to grow longer than 10cm.
• The recommended height for mowing is 4-5cm. Never cut more than one-third of the height of the grass.

Instructions for care during rooting

1. Watering
• Freshly laid turf rolls need to be watered as required by the weather.
• During hot spells, water the lawn every day.
• When overcast, water the lawn using plenty of water 2-3 times per week.
• After the approximately 3-week rooting period, water the lawn normally according to weather conditions.
• It is advisable to carry out watering in the evening when evaporation is less intense.

2. Mowing
• After installation, the lawn may be mowed as soon as needed.
• Mow the lawn 1-2 times per week according to growth.

3. Application of fertilisers
• Apply fertilisers 3-4 times per growing season or as suggested by a soil fertility analysis.

4. Ready for use immediately after installation
• Avoid intense use during rooting.

Instructions for future care
Watering
If the lawn shows signs of drying up during a long dry spell, water it when necessary. Water the lawn once using plenty of water. It is advisable to carry out watering in the evening when evaporation is less intense and there is enough time for the water to be absorbed into the soil.

Application of fertilisers
Determine the amount of fertilisers according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Application of fertilisers Point in time Fertiliser
Spring fertilisation After raking Spring fertilisation of garden/lawn
1. Summer fertilisation Mid-June Summer fertiliser* for garden/lawn
2. Summer fertilisation End of July Summer fertiliser for garden/lawn
Autumn fertilisation Early September Puutarhan PK
*Alternatively, use Nurmikon kestolannos (slow release fertiliser). If so, no 2nd summer fertilisation is needed.

Mowing

The more often you mow your lawn, the more it thrives. Never cut more than one third of the height of the grass. For example, if the preferred length of the grass is 5 cm, it should be mowed when it reaches the height of 7-8cm. In practice, it means that you need to mow it once a week. The shorter you wish to keep your lawn, the more often you need to mow it. It is advisable to rake the lawn 1-2 times during the growing season to remove grass cuttings, especially if the cuttings left by the mower are very coarse or if the lawn is allowed to grow long, which increases the amount of cuttings.

Lawn care in spring

The first job in the spring is to rake the lawn to remove the grass burnt during the winter. Rake the lawn as soon as its surface is hard enough to support your weight. If the turf rolls were laid late during the previous autumn, rake the surface with due care so as not to disturb unrooted turf.

Lawn care in summer

Mow the lawn frequently, water it according to weather conditions and ensure timely application of fertilisers. You can also air the lawn by making holes or cuts in it using a pitchfork or a tool specifically designed for this purpose. Airing helps oxygen, water and nutrients to reach the roots and soil more effectively. Additionally, airing removes moss and makes the soil more porous.

Lawn care in autumn

Cut the lawn to its regular height before the winter. Remove the cuttings by raking.

Other things to consider

A turf roll is a living plant. Mycocelial filaments may be present in the base or soil. Fungi are harmless to people and pets. Turf rolls require large amounts of water during rooting when fungi are more likely to occur. They are also more common in rainy periods.

LAWN COUNTER

Use the counter to find about the price of turf rolls including delivery to the installation site. If the site is a special area, located far from population centres, hard to access or the rolls need to unloaded using a truck-mounted crane, the price is determined on a case-by-case basis. Up to a maximum of 10 pallets, the cargo is unloaded using a tailgate lifter and the pallets left at a location accessible by an articulated lorry. Deliveries containing more than 10 pallets require on-site unloading equipment such as a forklift truck.
